Thread: Rick Simpson's Run From the Cure

    Rick Simpson's Run From the Cure

    Greetings all.

    Since this constitutes an initial post,

    It will require an "exception" by the admin because it includes various addresses below. I cannot create the hyperlinks properly as the html is OFF.

    So.... this may or may not make it to public viewing. However, it deserves to and should be considered on the merits of the research and the testimonies included, and not merely disregarded as "anecdotal" and not "science"..... I post and try to put the info out for a good healthy discussion.

    There are other articles and reports to be future posted, but I guess we'll see if this makes it to public viewing.

    Blessings to all,
    phoenixtears

    ps... none of the coding appears to be working (bold, etc.)... sorry
    I'll be glad to fix it if the admin will "enable" me.

    phoenixtears, I am sorry but I cannot approve of you posting those links because they violate 2 of our policies: No links and No Solicitation (at least your Subject gives the impression that the links contain requests to help in this run).

    True, I could give you an exception to the policies. However, if I did make an exception for you I would first have to review the links. It would also mean that I would have to review links posted be every new member who wanted to post a link. I really do not have the time to do that. Sorry.

    Hang in there for a month, post 10 significant messages and then you can use links.

    I agree with Jim- sorry phoenixtears. I hope you understand.

    As it is Jim spends most of the day and night doing new member request and viewing posts that need replying. I'm sure you can see, once you do it once, we have to do it to all.

    Thank you for the information- please post it again in a month.

    Thank you both for being responsive and polite.

    As to your concern Jim regarding solicitation.... Actually, the entire film is about the altruistic efforts of Canadian citizen Rick Simpson, a cheerful 60 something year old man.

    ESSENTIAL OIL EXTRACT

    He provided a simple essential oil extract for friends and neighbors. Free.

    Dosage was about the size of a grain of rice twice a day.

    He watched people get well.

    The film is his story and worth watching.

    Thank You for Understanding and not feeling as if this is a personal attack.

    It sounds interesting, and I will be having a look- sometime.

    DVD

    To all who may want to share this film, I have it on DVD.

    I think it plays in "all regions"..... I'll have to check that out.

    You can PM/email and I can provide a copy at minimal charge.

    Always something to read about. I am impressed that there is about 200 abstracts in PubMed.

    I am doing some reading on it now.

    Inhibition of cancer cell invasion by cannabinoids via increased expression of tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinases-1.

    CONCLUSION: Increased expression of TIMP-1 mediates an anti-invasive effect of cannabinoids. Cannabinoids may therefore offer a therapeutic option in the treatment of highly invasive cancers.

    There are many things that are natural that help fight cancer, yet very few are in clinical trials. All cancers seem to have one thing in common, no cure. The day after your treatment they can't say your cancer free and it will not come back. My fear is that in developing a cure or vaccine the cancer will then adapt to the treatment and a new one will have to be made.

    Cancer must be attacked in multiple pathways not just a single one. Since there was no cure for my cancer, what options did the doctors leave me? We all become somewhat of experts in the cancer we have, how come our doctors knowledge is limited to various types of chemo? I decided on a novel treatment, with my doctors approval. That is funny they know little about what I am doing, it seems more doctors overseas are interested in the novel approaches people are doing then the doctors in the U.S.

    One of the biggest problems is bioavailability, how much of this will actually make it to the blood stream where it is needed. The next problem is a lot of people get drug tested at random and when getting a new job. It won't matter if you have a prescription, they will go with federal law.

    Right now a program is getting ready to kick off in the UK with a daisy, its called DMAPT and is hopeful in many areas of cancer. The biggest problem is we don't have time to wait on them, we have to be the pioneers.

    Keep the faith, we all have too much to live for.

    audio rick simpson interview

    I am still a newbie to this forum but can now post an occasional link to
    those that are following this thread. I have edited this post to now include the link to click and download.

    This is a (condensed) MP3 audio interview with Rick Simpson on March 09, 2008.

    http://207.44.144.49/~ronpaula/SimpsonF2F.mp3

    It was basically a talk show chat with Rick Simpson by phone from Canada.

    Even condensed it was still about 90 minutes long.

    On a personal note:

    I thought I would clarify something on a personal note:

    I am 56 years old, raised a family and am now a grandfather 3 times over.
    I haven't smoked pot in over 30 years.... and still don't.

    Smoking is probably the LEAST medicinal way to use this plant.
    I'd never heard of ingesting the essential oil.... and apparently I'm not alone.

    The dosage levels for effective use of the oil as an curative, broadbased treatment against disease and maladies need not get one "high".

    I have completely abandoned the preconception that this battle is about a legal excuse for "potheads to get high".

    This is a much more serious issue about people being able to help themselves and produce a powerful, effective medicine cheaply without need of Pharma or Government.

    Some of my anchor thoughts picked up along the way:

    1. How long does it take to "study" one plant?
    2. Why, if in the late 1800's, Eli-Lilly (and others) were selling tinctures of the essential oil (diluting with alcohol) as medicine, are we not further along in this process of "study".
    3. Why dilute?
    4. A plant cannot be patented.
    5. Why synthesize something that a plant offers naturally at an effective curative strength?
    6. Synthetics can be patented.
    You never know....until you find out!
